I've been making my own inline spinners for several years. I used to make them for bass and pike. Made up some ultralight versions for trout and panfish (or anything that will hit them). Spinner weights are between 1.7g and 5.2g. I also bought some spoon blanks from Aliexpress and sprayed on some powder paint. Definitely not the same as store bought but I don't think that fish are qualified art critics.
Spoon weights are between 2.5g and 3.5g. I found that working with the spoons was way more tedious than putting the inline spinners together. After the expense of buying the spoons, split rings, quality hooks and the paint as well as the time to cure and assemble, it would be cheaper to buy pre-made spoons from the CDM. However, I do like my JDM spoons a lot, just on the expensive side. I usually use small jigheads with plastics along with inline spinners. Never used a spoon yet. When all else fails I (gasp!) use a mealworm on a #12 hook. Anyone else make their own ultralight lures to save a buck?

They look great and catching a fish on a fly or lure you made yourself always makes it extra special. I tie flies but never made any lures. I like that you used a single hook vs a treble.

making your own spinners maens your may be more willing to cast to snags, thus getting to areas you may not throw a $5 mepps /panther martin to. i throw my own bluegill clousers freely. if i lose it it's all good. side benefit is you can make those "killer" chartreuse ,single hook, red tailed baits for a couple of quarters. same with poppers.
